Due to the ongoing nature of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will be implementing various guidelines in order to ensure the safe and comfortable running of these sessions:

What we’ll do to keep our participants and our staff safe and comfortable:
• Strictly limiting Young Company capacity to allow for social distancing.
• Providing multiple hand sanitisation points for participants to use.
• Design Young Company to avoid sharing materials and equipment.
• Ensuring enhanced and frequent cleaning throughout our building.
• Providing up-to-date training for our workshop leaders.
• Sending you a reminder email with all you need to know, in line with the most up-to-date Government advice, a few days before Young Company starts.

What our participants need to do:
• Follow social distancing and Government guidance during Young Company.
• If participants are showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or have been in contact with anyone that has the virus within 14 days of attending Young Company, they must not attend. Please let us know before Young Company starts so we can give you a full refund for any sessions missed.
• Wear a face covering when moving generally around our building. The face covering does not need to be worn when in the workshops and specific break out spaces.
• Make sure they bring food and drinks each day to avoid leaving our site during breaks and lunchtimes.
• If participants are being dropped off or picked up, parents and carers will need to wait outside our main entrance doors to help limit numbers on site.

If you have any concerns about Young Company, or if you would like to see the space where it takes place before your child attends, please email participation@nottinghamplayhouse.co.uk.
